Igboeli Arinze, FCT-
Following calls by Hon. Kingsley Chinda ( PDP,Obi-Akpor) in which he urged Nigerians to call on their elected representatives in the National Assembly to begin impeachment proceedings against President Muhammadu Buhari owing to his alleged failure to secure lives and properties within the federation, the All Progressives Congress has called out the legislator, describing him as being insensitive and playing politics with the grief of citizens.
In a statement signed by the Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, the party’s spokesperson announced that it would not join issues with Chinda, describing him as a “factional leader” of the PDP Caucus in the House of Representatives.
“The APC has no intention of joining issues with a crass statement credited to Kingsley Chinda, a purported factional “leader” of the PDP Caucus in the House of Representatives in which he has resorted to denigrate the office and person of the President by name-calling and insults.
Chinda’s insensitive and callous intention is to play politics with the grief of citizens in the aftermath of the recent, gruesome and condemnable killings of some defenceless farmers in Zabarmari, Borno state by Boko Haram. The APC will not join Chinda and his PDP backers on this evil and ignoble road.
We have since learnt that Chinda does not even have the support of any of the PDP House factions he claims to head. He is a lone, rejected voice. The House of Representatives has already dismissed Chinda’s rant as illogical, self-serving and a ploy to derail the proposed visit of the President to the House.”
Nabena further stated that the President and the leadership of the National Assembly and the Armed Forces which the President heads as Commander in Chief were on the same page in tackling the emerging security situation.
“The leadership of the National Assembly, the President and Armed Forces which the president heads as Commander in chief are on the same page in takling emerging security situations in the country and ensure the safety of all Nigerians.”
